I recently bought a couple tins of the new Daisy Hollow Point pellets from Amazon.
Price was 8.96+tax for the .22 cal shipped as add on item.

These are the Made in Spain ones and are very different from the previous generation that were very black, covered in oil, messy and smelled like fish.
The first impression: They are very clean and seem well made and uniform.

10 shots at 10 yards went into the same hole and were consistent at 485-495 fps in my AT44-10 MW, I had been shooting the CPHP with similar speed and precision in that rifle so I assess the Daisys to be comparable. However, the daisys are quite different shape and size.
I measured the two and post pics side by side. The Daisy's have the same head diameter, 5.50 mm as the CPHP, but are longer at 7.29mm compared to 6.57mm for the CPHP. The Daisys also weigh 15.4 gr compared to the CPHP at 14.3 (actual measurements, there are no weights claimed on either tin).

The Daisys look more like wadcutters than domed pellets and I have yet to test them at longer distances, but for basement shooting at 10 yd they seem like an affordable pellet for target and plinking.

Double click photo for close up, showing fine detail.

i also use these pellets as they are readily available at the local shop and for a good price....sometimes I buy 5000 at a time.(10 tins). I use them mostly for shooting small soup cans at 60 plus yards with my nitro venom and they hit with a satisfying clunk...I had a feeling though they were heavier than the Crosman pointed. Nice to know.Thanks.

Well, well. If the accuracy holds up at longer ranges, they should be a much better hunting pellet as well.

Thanks Duke.

May try them once I use up my supply of .22 cal. Crosman Hollow Points.

I see they are now $10.21 on Amazon.ca. Prices certainly do change quickly on Amazon.

I was buying the .22 Crosman HP's at Walmart in USA for around $7 US for 500, but don't see myself visiting the USA anytime soon.

I use them for pest control & in my Crosman 99's which do not like flat head pellets (causes feeding/jamming issues).

"Flat Head" pellets are for target shooting and usually lose accuracy past 15-20 yards.
They are also somewhat velocity oriented as well and fly best at 575fps to 620fps - usually.
